Hoping those with experience in the Soufriere area, and Anse Chastanet resort in particular, can help with a couple of questions. We're going to be in St. Lucia in a few weeks, and are staying in a private villa near the Anse Chastanet resort (not part of the reort itself). We will be renting a car to get around, but we've heard about the difficult driving conditions, so are also interested in the idea of getting to some places by water taxi.
In particular we'd like to go to Anse La Raye on Friday night for the fish fry. Is there a regular water taxi which goes from Anse Chastanet resort, or is this something we need to arrange on our own? I've seen other posts which talk about hiring a water taxi in Soufriere, but we're wondering whether we can do this from Anse Chastanet.
We're assuming that we will be able to access the beach at Anse Chastanet and park our car nearby, but if anyone has experienced problems accessing Anse Chastanet if they were not staying at the resort, we'd appreciate hearing. The resort also looks like it has good restaurants which we're hoping we'll be able to use.
This will be our first trip to St. Lucia and we're really looking forward to it, but just trying to figure a few things out before we go to eliminate surprises. Any information would be appreciated.
